Volvo CE is one of the largest companies in the industry, with a full product range, manufactured, serviced and supported all over the globe, and is also one of the most innovative Companies. Innovation is at the core of what we do, and it is evident in every aspect of the product development process, in the Company’s engagement with its customers, and in the unending flow of ideas and concepts to promote a sustainable future. Along with decades of engineering excellence, innovation has made Volvo CE what it is today – the world’s leading manufacturer of premium construction equipment. In India, Volvo CE is a complete solution provider for every challenge in infrastructure development, including financing solutions from Volvo Financial Services that help customers acquire the equipment they need to succeed.
“The portfolio of our products and services is matched by the ever expanding horizons – we are constantly innovating to meet our customers’ future needs,” says Dimitrov Krishnan, Head of Region India.
For EXCON, Volvo CE India has lined up an interesting mix of time-tested, quality machines and brand-new exciting equipment. On display is a new model - the EC300DL Block Handler (BH) Crawler Excavator - custom-built for the quarry. It is armed with heavy-duty lower frame and toughened undercarriage components and powered by Volvo D7E engine. The EC300DL BH is designed to deliver best-in-class productivity while ensuring lower operating costs and overall operator comfort and safety. “The EC300DL BH is just what every quarry contractor is looking for,” says Dimitrov Krishnan. “Faster returns on investment and a workhorse that can be relied upon – for years.”
Also on display is the Volvo EC 480D Excavator with Vibro Ripper – a new introduction for mining industry. The EC 480D Excavator is the most productive and efficient machine in its class, while the Vibro Ripper represents a special ‘vibro-isolation’ technology. It protects the excavator from vibration and shock while delivering at least 3X higher productivity with low operations cost compared to hydraulic breakers. This model will be a game-changer in mining operations and set a new trend.
Alongside these models is an exhibit of Volvo Range of Road Machine Products including SD 110 CD Soil Compactor, P7320 ABG Track Paver and DD 90C Asphalt Compactor. The SD 110 CD Soil Compactor features infinite variable frequencies as standard, offering greater flexibility to the operator to fine-tune performance. The machine’s optimized centrifugal force improves ease of operation and productivity. The Volvo Traction System in the machine delivers excellent climbing capabilities – essential on steep inclines or slippery surfaces. The Compactor can be quickly and easily converted from a smooth drum to a padfoot drum by clamping on a padfoot shell, allowing the machine to work in different applications.
The P7320 ABG Track Paver is Volvo CE’s newest paver range to be launched in India. The unit offers a winning combination of power, production capacity and precision for excellent paving quality with perfectly smooth mats. Fitted with 9m High density Variomatic screed, P7320 Paver offers a high degree of flexibility when frequently changing paving widths. With a Volvo fixed screed, this Paver is proven to be effective when paving up to 700 tons per hour at 9 meters width. This level of throughput makes it versatile enough for a range of applications, including city roads, highways and waste storage areas.
The DD 90C Asphalt Compactor is highly efficient at delivering quality compaction on any medium- to large-sized asphalt job. It is armed with an automatic water spraying system and a fully adjustable operator station that slides to the side of the cab so that operators can see the edge of the asphalt, making it an extremely safe and operator-friendly machine.
These new generation machines, purpose-built for the Indian Market, deliver an unrivalled level of quality in paving and compaction applications. They are engineered for efficiency, easy to operate, promise more uptime and outstanding finish across a range of road projects. Also on show at EXCON are Volvo CE blockbusters – the EC 200D Excavator and L 120H Wheel Loader. All machines on display set new benchmarks when it comes to safety, reliability and fuel efficiency – hallmarks of every Volvo Construction Equipment.
It takes more than well-built machines to get the job done, which is why Volvo Fiancial Services (VFS) is also a highlight for Volvo CE at EXCON. Having the right finance partner matters.
